Jahnavi with Hanumen on tour in the USA. Some seriously committed musicians and poets took to the road to offer sacred music and poetry: Left to Right – Bonnie Argo, John de Kadt, Benjy Wertheimer, Purusartha das, Tulasi devi, Jahnavi Harrison and Warrick Moses.
I was surprised that this clip of Jahnavi leading kirtan at the Yogamaya yoga studio in New York has had over 30,000 views. Either lots of people have been sharing it with their friends, or a small number of people have been watching it many times.
It might be that people are becoming more interested in kirtan, or it might be that they actually always were – but now we have video-sharing software to make it more accessible. I don’t know.
Perhaps the famous prophecy of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, that kirtan would be sung in ‘every town and village,’ is very slowly becoming a reality. Personally – I don’t know.
But if you’d like to have kirtan in your village and be part of an old prophecy, you could start in your home right now. It will make you feel good inside. Watch the video and you’ll get the idea.
